Ami, I found this. I’d use pure sucralose to sweeten, not agave, to be sure I don’t have carbs. Obviously, you’ll want to adjust for the amount of beans you have...

HOMEMADE VANILLA BEAN PASTE

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


Calories per serving: 20

INGREDIENTS:

30 Vanilla Beans*
6 tbs Vanilla Extract (I used homemade)
1⅔ cups Agave Nectar**
DIRECTIONS:

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth (you can chop up the vanilla beans if you want to save some time).
Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the mixture inside.
Press on the vanilla bean “pulp” to get as much liquid out. Pour the strained vanilla paste liquid into a jar and seal tightly (discard the pulp, or you can reuse it to steep in homemade vanilla extract).  Store the vanilla paste in the fridge.
NOTES:

*I used the vanilla beans that I used to make my Homemade Vanilla Extract.
**You can sub the Agave Nectar with Vegetable Glycerine for a sugar-free version if you like!
